    Don't know if it was the same thread, but I saw one of their posters lamenting their "declining academics" as well. They see it, they just don't mention it often.

    Texas State is broken.

    From one of their more knowledgeable posters on the SBC board...

    What you are starting to see is the donors are leaving in droves. Over the past two years, the bobcat club (the arm of the department that collects donations for scholarships) has dropped 50%. For the first time, we have suites available, and champions level seating is also readily available (they are even offering partial season deals for championship level seating for the first time)
    People paying for Fire the AD banners to be flown over the stadium. People kicked out of our game last Saturday with Fire the AD signs.

    Sad scene over here. A school with everything they need to be near the top of the G5 except the right people to run the place.

    Sound familiar?

    Texas St and UL have two things working against them:
    1) The cities they reside in are too small with little corporate presence
    2) most importantly, they are 50 miles from college football national powers.

    Both LSU and Texas siphon off donors, fan attendance and media coverage. If we were even 150 miles away it would be a huge bonus. It makes the job not impossible, but more difficult. That said, I think we have the administration in place to combat these issues. Looks like Texas St does not.

    And UTSA 50 miles away and TXA&M 120 miles away.

We're in the situation we're in because Hud rode Broadway until the wheels fell off and they never developed Nixon, Haack, or Davis, and by the time he was done here, he spent every week throwing Davis, Lewis, and Nunez at a wall to see if one would stick. There's at least some method to this particular madness.
    Fields will enroll in the spring.
